vietnam to call for u.s. withdrawal. the current u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, is rumored to the top candidate to replace y clinton as secretary of state. rice was asked about her future plans on monday. >> i love my job here in the united nations. i always have. i always will. especially today. i look forward to serving as long as president obama would like to. >> the obama administration has announced it will likely decide in the coming weeks on the role of u.s. troops in afghanistan after a scheduled withdrawal in 2014. on monday, defense secretary leon panetta said although the majority of u.s. forces will return home, and unspecified number could stay behind to continue military operations. new government data shows the year-to-date time from january to october was the warmest ever recorded for the contiguous united states. according to the national climatic data center, the national temperature was 3.4 degrees fahrenheit higher than the 20th century average, and more than one degree higher than the previous record for the first 10 months of the year. october's cooler
no real bearing on the situation in gaza. but she appealed to him not to about on november 29 to the u.n., and seek observer states for you palestinians that would be a back-channel way to achieve statehood. i am told that he did not agree to that shetion went to cairo, where the one thing she did achieve is she got the egyptian president, mohamed morsi to be the address if hamas breaks the ceasefire and begins firing rockets into israel again, that egypt will be responsible, and will be held responsibility, they have taken responsibility, but this is a verbal agreement, this is not a written agreement, there is no implementation mechanism in place, this is really just a cooling-off period. to see if negotiators can really get at the root issues that are the smuggling tunnels for weapons coming in to the gaza strip, many from iran and the sinai desert, and whether hamas will be disarmed in the end. lou: the stubborn choice for both, palestinians and the israelis, the right to govern themselves, versus the right assurance guaranteed security. how surprising is it, to you, that israel woul
for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the reason for that was because it was a curtesy in order for them to wait until they had a face-to-face meeting with her which was today. after that meeting their criticism was harsher than ever. the way these grim-faced gop senators tell it, susan rice's attempt to calm their criticism backfired. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> i'm more disturbed now than i was before. >> reporter: rice requested to meet with her chief republican critics in order to explain why five days after the september benghazi attack that killed four americans she went on sunday talk shows suggesting it was sparked by a spontaneous protest. >> the information given to the american people was wrong. in fact, ambassador rice said today absolutely it was wrong. >> reporter: accompanied b

the perhaps more cyberattacks that are maybe something like an armed attack under the u.n. charter conceivably i suppose, even inactive or, though that is debatable at this point to whether we seen anything like that today. i put a few appear that are relevant. computer network attack talking about that encompass different things. computer network exploitation is basically a to infiltrate a computer network for any of the purposes i just described. it may be some of armed attack. maybe it is for criminal activities and you're hoping to be surreptitious about which are doing. babies are espionage and again are hoping to be surreptitious. so i have an example of how these concepts interrelate to one another and how if you're in the business of computer network defense, you're trying to defend networks at your company. if you look at this from a policy perspective for the united states, for example i'm how vulnerable is the united states? how vulnerable is our critical infrastructure, nuclear power plants, things like that. you quickly see that an infiltration into the network might be to steal a
: the president is being warned against promoting u.n. ambassador susan rice. under fire about her incorrect statements about what happened in benghazi, but democrats say the attacks on rice are about race and gender. we will talk to kelly ayotte and see what she thinks about that. bill: feeling the heat from a major -- >> we don't have the estimate on the grid impact, we are still working on that. if you look through the downtown area the majority of it is dark except for the people who do have generators. there is a fairly substantial impact. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator working together to help improve your lung function all day. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteopo
brennan is in washington. >> reporter: president obama views susan rice as his quarterback at the u.n. when he nominated her to be the ambassador he elevated that role to cabinet level. a status that her predecessors did not have. for this next promotion the president will fight skeptical republicans who question rice's judgment in the days following the benghazi attack. >> i still don't know how anybody of that capacity could have been on television five days later saying the things that were said. i don't know how that can happen. >> she has to answer questions about that. there's no doubt about it. >> reporter: susan rice hit a nerve during a string of television appearances five days after the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. she didn't call it a act of terror. >> we do not have information at present to lead us to conclude it was preplanned. >> reporter: that's leading to her obstacle as becoming secretary of state. john mccain and lindsey graham said they will try to keep her out of office. the white house said she was relying on the cia's best information at the time.
after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> we haven't seen the president like that in a while. >> testy. defiant. kind of his make my day moment. go after her, make my day. i mean, in a way, and you could look at this two ways politically. you could say, okay, did he do that because now he's going to nominate her to be secretary of state when hillary clinton leaves or did he do it to get it on the record so when he nominates something else like john kerry, he is on the record saying you didn't cow me to not elect her. >> an unprecedented var eed shae vote being nonwhite, do republicans really want the first thing they do in 2013 is filibuster the nomination of a black woman secretary of state. >> in that same press conference, he called her an easy target. i'm not sure what he meant, but it might have been what ron was talking about. >> a little postmortem mitt romney
in favor of bid.tinians's u.n. the french government said it would vote in favor of the palestinians ' bid of non- member status. how would you fix your school system? we have a couple minutes left. larry in jackson, mississippi, independent. caller: good morning. newly appointed superintendent, i met with yesterday. we have 30,000 students and 2000 are homeless. 70% of our schools in the city, i visited alternative schools where we had the bus driver and security guards running the alternative schools. we have teachers who are failing these students and failed those students' parents and grandparents. they've been in the school system's 25 for 30 years. we accept this. we fired a coach at southern university yesterday because they went 0-12. how is it we led 75% of our students fail and we continue to retain the same principals and teachers? 76% of our schools in jackson need to be charter schools. this is the only outlet that i see for the future of our children in jackson, mississippi. host: let me throw this into the mix before we go. schools install a tracking system despite protests.
that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with john mccain's clip if we can. dan, this is john mccain on -- john mccain by the way who voted to approve condoleezza rice as secretary of state. talking about susan rice. here's the clip. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i would do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> john: that was the man who thought sarah palin was qualified to be president talking about someone who doesn't understand. now not to be outdone senator lindsey graham, the most interesting of all southern republicans i would say came out a few hours later and t
should defend israel and the court of world preponderance, whether it is in the u.n. or other international forums and insist that the real story come out. it is hamas that has been on the offensive. israel has practiced so much patience and reluctance to go into gaza, until these rockets, as you have indicated, have come into jerusalem and the escalation with rockets coming into tel aviv and other population centers there. we have an obligation. the president has an obligation, thus far, the white house has acted in a way that i believe the israelis can see that america stands by us. certainly, in the past, last couple of years, there has been a questions in my mind about whether where the president and the white house stand as far as the u.s./israel relationship. i am glad to see what they have said this week. i hope it holds. >> greta: talking about a -- i don't know if that gets us clocloser to a solution. i don't pretend to know the solution. but i see that egypt -- president morsi has -- has gotten involved. i see this getting more complicated, an already complicated sit
hood to the u.n. general assembly. they've been unable to convince abbas not to do so and president murphy of egypt is unlikely to stand in his way, shannon. >> jennifer griffin live from the white house tonight. thank you. >> the two day old cease-fire between israel and gaza is mostly holding, all has not done smoothly. connor powell has the story from jerusalem. >> the fra gifragile cease-fire. and the border between israel and gaza and some were farmers wanted to get access to their land. and others the cease-fire agreements. after shouting verbal warnings to the crowds, israeli troops opened fire killing one pal al and wounding more than a dozen. and israel and hamas accused each other of violating the the cease-fire agreement so far both sides showed restraint. today the first time in two weeks, the tomorrow leader in gaza appeared in public and even he avoided the normal inflammatory language that acompanies most incidents. >> and i think for some people to try to go inside means something. >> neither side, it appears, wants to return to the violence of the past weeks. and ha
, it just adds to these continuing layers of a narrative. if we are to expect that the u.n. ambassador, potentially the future secretary of state didn't have access and wasn't involved in discussions five days on from the attacks talking about the scenario of the terrorists the fact that there was no protest she talked about sunday morning show, then we have a serious problem. >> the picture in your head is she is handed a packet of paper. she reads it over, says thank you and goes and delivers it to the media. is that how it works? there is some sort of briefing, it's more than papers there is a discussion about what happened in which someone that is going to be the secretary of state should ask questions. correct? >> right. absolutely much the idea that somehow, you know, she slipped one page briefing memo with some talking points that by the way have been edited constantly apparently since the cia produced the basic intelligence, the raw intelligence from the field talking about what had been happening, it doesn't add up. and nothing happens in washington, you know, in a bubble. it'
when he gave his speech at the u.n. and he had this graphic illustration of the problem, he created what was a new threshold for them. for the previous, i don't know, six to 12 months, israelis have been focusing on what they called immunity. the result of immunity. what you mean by that was the death and the breath and the hardening of the nuclear program they face an existential threat and have the military option to deal with it. so they are saying under a point at which they own immunity is going to kick in, he was saying this is going to be the end of 2012. he has changed that and has said it has been pushed back eight to 10 months. when the prime minister was in new york, he focused not only on his own immunity, but the point at which iranians would cross the threshold where they would have the ability to build a nuclear weapon and you wouldn't be able to do anything about it. and he was suggesting that that would be when they had one at 20%. that is a limited definition. the issue for him was to define in a way, it also pushed off into the middle of 2013. they came up with di
north korea it strikes me that kim jung un is allowing to some westernized foods and such in. do you foresee anything be an done about the boming and the supposed sunken ship? i don't see any sanctions from the administration on north korea. what specifically president obama dealing with this, i think there are things that should be done. i think he could possibly talk to him and maybe get back to the six party talks. i would like to know your views on that. thank you. guest: i think that's a good point. the new leader in north korea, kim jong un, is in power. but it is a famously closed society. there's certainly a fear of nuclear escalation and there have been shakeups within the north korean military. whether or not that's an internal power struggle, we do not know. one of the top generals was perhaps killed by mortar fire. perhaps that is something that obama will bring to the table on his trip to asia, but i think there is a consistent policy that we want to prevent nuclear escalation in the region and it is true for all sides. japan, south korea, china, and other areas. we just
joins me now, former ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. good morning to you. >> good morning, martha, glad to be with you. >> what do you think? >> i think there is an amazing difference between what happens after november 6th and our election and what happened before it. as you were asking before how is it that the allen investigation is treated so much differently than the petraeus investigation, a lot of facts we don't know, but certainly this is post november the 6th and whatever the political consequences, they are very attenuated for the president. i think the real issue of course we need to go back to ultimately is benghazi and what happened on september the 11th. but i think also this question of how politicized our national security has become under the obama administration and the effort to push everything past november the 6th really now is something that congress and other political leaders need to focus on. martha: i want to ask you about all these emails and what these folks are up to and how they've got all this time to do this stuff. the first question
was right yesterday when he said are you you -- of our u.n. ambassador susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states' interest in the united nations with skill and professionalism, with toughness and grace to go after the u.n. ambassador he said who had nothing to do with benghazi, was simply making a presentation based on the intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. i agree with him. we owe it to her, we owe it to everyone involved in every federal agency to get the facts before us before we point a finger of blame. if there is blame, let us make certain that it is apportioned to those who deserve it rather than to make wild charges against many others. my good friend, senator john mccain -- and he really is my friend -- he and i have debated on the floor many times, but he said something that i want to quote from 2005 when there were criticisms of condoleezza rice who was being considered for the office of secretary of state. this is what senator mccain said -- "so i wonder why we're starting this new congress with
the sort of weird series of events, we have at the u.n. ambassador sent out. why she was sent out -- i don't know. she doesn't seem like the person to be sent out. certainly, she was the wrong person because she carried the party line, at least what i see about this business about the spontaneous protest, as well as the video. then you have general petraeus. he goes 9/14 with the same story. you have the president going on every entertainment -- exaggeration, he went on letterman and the view. that's weird. you have the problem with eligible petraeus and broadwell, the girlfriend. we don't finish that relationship poisoned how he did his job. how did she get classified documents. where did she get that and whether or not, you know, when did the affair begin, did it begin in the military, and did he lie about it? it's all done, presumably, so far, whined closed doors, but it was just one day, right? >> right. i think that's why senator mccain and graham and iiot have proposed the select committee. presumably, that would be in public. i think this is going to go on for quite sometime. i thin

and the president did it in front of the u.n. the fact of the matter is they did change the talking points, video ya his own speech after this horrific murder of our four americans. >> why would the fact it was a terrorist attack be redacted? why would that be classified information when it was immediately apparent that it was? >> i don't know. i wish i didn't have to say that because there was an eyewitness account the 24 hours that said there was an organizationer organized jihadist in the crowd. i learned when i was working in intelligence and the navy's anti-terrorism unit rarely do you find a one-armed intelligence officer. they are always saying on whaund but on the other hand and as the paper left the cia, that general petraeus said or allegedly now in a classified hearing that there were organized terrorists involved in the attack and why it was changed, it is too easy to leap to where it was changed in the white house to maybe there were other types of information that maybe had good reason why it was changed and that's why you have an investigation before you leap to an asrgs it was done f
vowing to block u.n. ambassador susan rice is she is nominated by the president to be the n-secretary of state. graham said he doesn't trust her because she went on tv after the attack at the u.s. consulate with information he says simply turned out to be false. >> something else i want to ask you about. there are three separate hearings going on on the issue of benghazi. yet, senators mccain and lindsey graham want a watergate style select committee hearing on this affair. what is that, and is it likely to happen? >> they're saying there are too many different committees and disparate committees investigating. they call it stove piping and they want it to be all consolidated into one special select committee. watergate was an example. they also give the example of the 9/11 commission. is that likely to happen? the answer at this point is likely no because even the top republican in congress, house speaker john boehner yesterday threw cold water on it saying he doesn't think it's necessary and the top democrat in the senate says the same thing, and others, as well. i have to
clear -- most recently at the general assembly meeting in september at the u.n., and now we have interesting results from two states here from washington state and from colorado. in addition to the many states -- i think there are 17 or 18 -- where marijuana can be used for medicinal purposes. in these two states, they can be used for recreational purposes. there we have the pressure from the region joined with some of the pressure and trends in shift in public opinion in the u.s., which i think will contribute an ad to greater pressure on the administration at the national level to rethink its policy on drugs, which is clearly having very negative effects or perceived to having negative effects in terms of crime, violence, and corruption in many countries in latin america. i think obama administration will probably say it has done some things to move forward on this issue, talking about shared responsibility, but i think despite some changes in the discourse, the essential elements of the policy have been pretty unchanged until now. again, this does open some -- possibilities. t

to make sure susan rice is nominated by the president, u.n. ambassador to be secretary of state, is that enough to make sure she's confirmed. >> i would be surprised if he nominated susan rice. although she probably would be confirmed, hearings would be a misery, a place where we would see again and again that she was the mouthpiece for a false story about what happened in benghazi. does the administration want to be held hostage to susan rice's overstatements of the case on tv multiple, multiple times. >> i don't know if you have inside information, everything i hear the president wants her to be the next secretary of state. >> she would be a strong nominee, excellent for this job. and if republicans want to go down the road of benghazi making it a political issue, we saw it play out in the campaign, not much success for them, it would be a strategic error to play politics with this issue and try to block susan rice with it. >> what about john kerry, rumored to replace panetta at the defense department. already calling the swift boat activity, saying he threw away his medals fr
, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organization. the question is though, when did he reach that final conclusion? did he know that before susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations went on those five sunday shows and insisted what happened in benghazi was the result of spontaneous anger from that anti-muslim video? >> all the i can tell you, wolf, is this source says the intelligence reports that came in blaming the video, those 20 or so reports, this source says petraeus had those reports disproved over time after he testified or rather
